My first-and-ever girlfriend, who is an American, hasn't connected with me for more than 5 months.
Is it over?

Absence makes the heart grow fonder for someone else and that may be what happened to your with your girl friend. Still there is nothing wrong - in fact it is very nice that you write to her or call her to say Hello. Maybe she has been ill or thinks you don't care. It is always nice to look back and renew your friendship with the opposite sex.
Maybe she think of you too but is too shy to get in touch with you. I remember hearing from an old boyfriend who lived in California. After many years he called me. How he found out my address I will never know but it felt nice to hear from him. We exchanged our present life styles. He asked me to come out to California - but I would not do that at this time. But it was nice. Try giving it a try. You both will get a kick out of it.
I'm a nice 37 year-old Jewish guy. The problem is that I live in a university town in England. Everyone here seems to be either 18 or 60. How can I meet people my own age?

Seek out a Jewish community in perhaps another town not too far away and join a club there. Try some activity at the school. A sport or a game of some kind - old people don't play sports much. Go to lectures where young people go. They are usually your age. How about taking a trip to London?
How did you get to this town? Why didn't you get some information about the people at the school? If you are studying for a Masters or PHD degree, you are only there for a short time and you should spend weekends visiting the country. That is a good way to meet people. You don't tell me much about yourself so I am just guessing about you. If you feel like it - write me more.
